NEW ORLEANS - A former state representative has pleaded guilty to tax fraud in federal court today.

Former state Rep. Girod Jackson entered his plea on three tax fraud accounts in U.S. District Court in New Orelans.

Jackson resigned from the Lousiana Legislature in August after being charged with federal tax fraud and failure to file tax returns.

He represented the West Bank of Jefferson Parish.

Jackson faces up to 3 years in prison.
